ABOUT

I am a busy 40 year old Pro Drummer, but I am always looking for more work. Well versed in many styles and open minded. Currently play with the 90's cover band, Thirsty Horses and my yet un-named Modular Cover Band. I am also the full time drummer for Lake City Church in Mooresville, NC as well as the recording projects Letters Lost and Forty Year Trial. My pricing is flexible and always on a case by case basis. I am a team player and always out to serve the music first, while having a blast, and making the music sound it's best. I am out to be your FIRST call drummer, and the last call you have to make for any of your drumming or percussion needs. I am always open to Acoustic Duos/Trios, Pop or Rock Bands, Wedding/Dance Bands, Country bands, Recording Sessions, you name it.

As a side note, I also run a small but growing sound company, Shadow Gate Entertainment, where I offer live sound, mobile recording sessions, and limited video services as well.

I am always looking for bands needing a backup or fill in drummer, as well as musicians to plug into my modular cover band, and possibly Letters Lost. Currently, I am looking for guitarists, bass players, and vocalists for the Modular Cover Band and Letters Lost.
